Listen! My Beloved!


Here is another piece that I plan to put into the show at the JCA here in Jacksonville in May. It is a tribute to Bobbi Yoffee, the most talented calligraphic artist I have even known, and had the privilege of knowing and studying with.  She passed away with cancer several years ago. She loved doing  Song of Solomon Scriptures. We all miss her terribly. She used to do Ketubahs(among other stunning works of art) that you couldn't even believe a human could do with beautiful illustrations and calligraphic Hebrew letters. Absolutely amazing. 

This background with painted with FW Inks and the lettering was done with Windsor Newton Gouache. The frame is from Target.  Love these frames with the thick wide mat.
